OverviewHide
Experience the culture and scenery of Svolvær and Henningsvær on this glimpse of Norway's local fishing towns. Svolvær has a population of 4,487 inhabitants and is one of Northern Norway's most important harbors. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this bustling harbor town that is also a haven for artists. Enjoy a scenic drive through the city, passing Lofoten Cathedral. This charming yellow church has room to hold 1,200 people to accommodate fishermen staying in Lofoten during the fishing season. Afterward, make your way to Henningsvær, the "Venice of Lofoten." Discover the Gallery Lofoten House which features the country’s largest collection of paintings from Northern Norway dating back to the turn of the last century – a period by many called the golden age of North Norwegian painting. On the gallery’s ground floor you find a collection of paintings by renowned artists like Otto Sinding, Gunnar Berg, Even Ulving, Adelsteen Normann, Einar Berger, Ole Juul, Thorolf Holmboe and others. The first floor is then divided into two sections – one exhibiting watercolors by Lars Lerin and one exhibiting pictures and ceramic works by Her Majesty Queen Sonja.
